Abbreviations are written out in full. Wherever the photographs—taken by the staff of the MEI in the 1920s—were unreadable or the manuscripts had been “damaged,” the editors generously provided their suggestions about the missing content in parentheses.

The planned third volume was supposed to comprise manuscripts and works written between the Deutsch-Französische Jahrbücher and the spring of 1845.
